LXer: FileZilla, Other Open-Source Software From 'Right' Sources Is Safe

Published at LXer:

A basic tenant of open-source software security has long been the idea that since the code is open, anyone can look inside to see if there is something that shouldn't be there. It's a truth that does work and many of us who use open-source software daily, accept it as such. That's why some recent news about a Trojan in a popular File Transfer Protocol (FTP) program is a potential cause for concern.
